Christmas at Longwood GardensChristmas at Longwood GardensHappy holidays! I went to photograph the holiday spirit at Longwood Gardens, PA - and spotted a lot more than the plants and the lights! These spirit beings popped forth and asked to be photographed as well.

Conservatory Celebrations

The extensive conservatory is fully decked out in a gorgeous array of flowering plants and trees. 

Enjoying the display is this small vineman, with his wonderfully ornate hooked nose.

The DuPonts loved to sit on their back patio and overlook the descending hillside lawn.

Spirit DogSpirit Dog Old Watchdog

This must have been one of their favorite dogs, who grew to a ripe old age, lying by this tree in retired old man splendor, eyes seemingly peacefully shut (left one) while part of him was keeping a watchful open eye (right one) on all the goings on. His spirit seems to have stayed behind, to watch over his family's home.

Dog at PlayDog at PlayThe nature beings were so amused by the antics of a playful floppy-eared dog that they did a portrait of him, above the tree hole where little forest animals skittered out of his reach. Playful Dog

Meanwhile - nearby in the woods the next generation of dogs -  playful and floppy-eared - enjoyed daily games of chase with small animals. They'd always disappear from reach inside this tree base opening. He so amused the tree spirit that it fashioned his image above the hole.
